Joe Walsh, Ringo Starr and the Mission to Save 45 Million Addicted Americans


The Eagles guitarist and Beatles drummer have a frank conversation about the fear, sacrifice and surrender required for getting sober

Quote:
Walsh: Because I didnít know what sober was. I thought I was going to have to wear a tie and have a job and go to work every day, and thatís not the case. No, I can do what I always do really well. I just had to learn how. When you get sober, you learn how to do everything one day at a time, and when you get enough things that you know how to do sober, youíre good to go.
Quote:
Starr: The good news is, though, a lot of new artists are sober people. The part of it where musician felt it was their right to get crazy has changed. And we lost a lot of really good [musicians] because of that. Why weíre [gestures to Walsh] still here, I donít know. Thatís just how it is. But I think now in the new music age, itís getting a bit cleaner. I think their rebellion is to stay clean. Like theyíre going back to vinyl [smiles].
